Show up… simply show up! These past few days have been spent in Conway tending to my brother who had a pacemaker put in. It turned out to be some of the best times we have spent together.
At a certain point in life, if we are really lucky, we are finally struck by the realization that we, as a human race, are all in this amazing life experience together and as my brother, an ex- Marine, would say ” No man left behind.” No man , woman, child- any living creature of God’s should ever be left alone. In this particular instance family first followed by everyone we have come to love , admire and then all mankind-including strangers-who are our brothers and sisters.
As we have collectively, as a human race,gone through Covid 19-one remaining constant is the strength of people’s ability to come together and try to lift each other up. We must release our spirit to rise and meet life’s challenges-especially providing hope in the hard times.
” It does take a village to raise a child but communal support can’t stop at the end of childhood-community support is needed through out all our lives. We must be there for each other!
So until tomorrow… “One of the most important things you can do on this earth is to let people know that they are not alone” -Alder

While admiring Ben’s Grace sign on his front door and Ben special relationship with the word GRACE that encompasses a type of love or favor completely unmerited has been Ben’s compass during Vietnam and still today. And Grace saw Ben through his surgery Tuesday. I couldn’t hook to his Wi-Fi so that is why there are some missing posts. Thank you for your prayers for him .
It has been a crazy few days and sorry the posts couldn’t post but we can only control the controllable!
